Lingering affects of elbow injury still impacting Lauri Markkanen - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys kick off the show with a quick preview of tonight’s final game of the Bulls west coast trip from hell in Denver. The Bulls have lost 11 games in a row to the Denver Nuggets on the road and are currently on an eight-game losing streak. The guys spend the majority of the episode dissecting an interview with Lauri Markkanen done by Yle Sports, a Finnish news outlet which goes talks at more length about his struggles this season.

The guys talk about Wendell Carter Jr.’s injury scare and have to make mention that this Bulls team seemingly cannot stay out of the headlines for more than a few days this season. The guys praise the good news that Carter’s thumb injury was not serious and his return is likely to be Saturday against the Miami Heat. Locked On Bulls also mentions that Carter was checked out for some soreness in his knee and was cleared on Thursday before shootaround.

Lauri Markkanen has played in 21 games this season since returning from injury which cost him all of training camp and the first 23 games of the season. Yle Sports caught up with Markkanen after the Bulls loss to the Lakers on Tuesday night to talk about his second season in the NBA. The guys discuss how this has been the first opportunity to hear Markkanen open up a little more about the struggles of returning since the injury, the impact of his injury, and the struggle overall of the Bulls.

Have Bulls fans and media been overlooking the impact of Lauri Markkanen’s injury? Locked On Bulls talks about the effects it can have on his game, the mental side, his unwillingness to be a selfish player, his quotes that emulate leadership, and his surprisingly good relationship off the court with Jim Boylen.

To wrap up, the guys discuss comments made by Zach LaVine postgame after the Bulls eighth loss in a row in Hollywood. LaVine was unable to be reached for comment by most, but the Chicago Sun-Times Joe Cowley was able to speak with LaVine on how he was feeling about the direction of year two with the Bulls. Are there warning signs of things to come this summer? How big of an impact is the remaining 38 games this season and what responsibility does LaVine have to the Bulls in taking that next step? All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

What will year two bring for Wendell Carter Jr.? - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back to quickly recap last night’s Bulls loss to the Knicks in New York, the guys circle around coaching, they discuss some improvements and surprises for Wendell Carter Jr. in year two, and a look at the NBA playoff picture.

The guys talk about last night’s loss to the worst team in the NBA, the New York Knicks. The guys discuss if this loss means anything in terms of the way Jim Boylen will be evaluated at the end of the season. The guys highlight quickly JaKarr Sampson’s first game in a Bulls uniform, Robin Lopez having a near career night on his birthday, and some discussion about the Knicks young center Mitchell Robinson.

The guys move on to looking around the NBA as the season winds down and the playoffs rapidly approach. Looking at the Eastern Conference first, which matchups seem like they could be the most intriguing in the first round? Who will make it out of the Nets, Pistons, Heat, and Magic for the last three spots? Is Kemba Walker’s time in Charlotte all but over and where are some likely free agent destinations for him? The guys circle around to the Western Conference where they talk about each matchup being equally as competitive in the first round.

The guys have a discussion on some of the teams who just missed out on the playoffs including the Sacramento Kings and how that relates to the Bulls plans next season. The guys talk about rookie Marvin Bagley III and how the Kings have managed his season this year. Why is it important to the Bulls? The guys will tell you. They also get into a conversation about Wendell Carter Jr.’s potential in year two and some of the possibilities we might see from him with the additions of a healthy Zach LaVine, Lauri Markkanen, Otto Porter Jr., and summer moves this off-season.

Bulls inch closer to a pivotal off-season, who will stick around? - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back from the weekend, the guys briefly discuss Bulls-Raptors, Walt Lemon and JaKarr Sampson signings, a game of Would You Rather? Bulls roster edition, coaching search, and a surprise team in on AD this summer?

The guys kick off the episode talking about the Bulls recent signings of Walt Lemon Jr. and JaKarr Sampson to help close out the season. The guys discuss Lemon’s first game against the Raptors on Saturday and what Sampson can bring in the final few games. The guys wonder if the signings come out of basic necessity, are good faith measures for good seasons in the G-League, or something else?

Locked On Bulls plays a short game of “Would You Rather” Bulls roster edition. If you had the choice to only keep one of the following three players, who would it be and why: Ryan Arcidiacono, Shaq Harrison, or Wayne Selden Jr.? The guys talk about the impact all three guys have had this season, what the Bulls will look like fully healthy next season and how that will impact their decision on keeping fringe players around.

The guys dive into the March Madness games from the weekend with a specific conversation on Duke prospect R.J. Barrett after their loss on Sunday. Have their opinions changed at all on Barrett as a possible option? The guys lay out some strengths and weaknesses they saw from the tournament in his game.

To wrap up the show, Locked On Bulls talks briefly about former Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg took the job at Nebraska officially. How does that impact a potential Bulls coaching search this summer? The guys also get into an interesting conversation about Anthony Davis after hearing a rumor about a possible surprise team in play this summer on The Lowe Post podcast.

Bulls crawling to the finish line as injuries, losses pile up

Locked On Bulls Podcast recaps last night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors, talks about Lauri Markkanen leaving the game in the third quarter, some last minute antics, and taking mailbag questions from their text and voicemail line.

Bulls crawling to the finish line as injuries, losses pile up - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys recap last night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors without Zach LaVine, Otto Porter Jr., and Kris Dunn. The guys spend the second half of the show taking mailbag questions, texts, tweets, and voicemails in their weekly episode of Locked On Bulls mailbag.

Some of the topics include whether the Bulls will look to draft a big man in the second round, some prospects available, would they take the risk on Bol Bol if he slides to the end of the first-early second round, and a scenario of trading up with the Atlanta Hawks for the No. 2 pick.

The guys talk about last night’s game with the idea that LaVine, Porter, and Dunn were out and the Bulls only dressed nine players. Lauri Markkanen only played 16 minutes in the game and left with ‘illness’ in the third quarter. Should the Bulls think about shutting him down for the rest of the season?

The guys talk about the time he did spend on the floor last night and how he was more aggressive but just missing shots. The guys also mention how the Raptors seem to be walking through this game as told by the final score, they mention the final 90 seconds and give props to Shaq Harrison and Wayne Selden Jr.

Should the Bulls be looking to draft a backup big man with their recently acquired second-round pick in the upcoming draft? Would you take the risk on NBA prospect Bol Bol if he started to slide to the end of the first round? What would it take to trade up from pick No. 4 to No. 2? All of these voicemails are answered and so much more on today’s episode of Locked On Bulls.
